Subject: eyeonbrevard: Why the "Eye"
Towards the end of July Brevard County Residents received
a notice regarding the pending implementation of a new “automated
solid waste service”. The subject became a featured article in
Florida Today – to which I responded – three times! My first two
letters were quickly removed and went unpublished. I was not rude,
but I was responding with the unvarnished truth.
Some hinted to the Waste Contract being “smelly” and part
of the “good old boy system”, but I stated actual reasons as to
why Waste Management was chosen over the recommended and lower
Chuck Nelson agreed with the County Managers process and
recommendation, which was flawed. Robin Fisher wanted his supplier
to be a good Corporate Citizens by donating funds to his favorite
charities, while Waste Management said they would invest funds
into a new recycling plant in his district. Mary Bolin believed
in Quality Service – never comparing the services of the alternate
bidder. The untold truth was the “the fix was in” – the “good old
boy” system, was indeed still at work.
Waste Management, along with other corporations and
powerful individuals know how to play the Commissioners like a
fiddle. Such methods are contrary to “Government by the People”
and should not be tolerated. Sometimes the truth has to be
exposed, even when politically incorrect so that it resonates with
those that really matter – the electorate.
While our local newspapers pander to their advertisers and
half the electorate – Eye on Brevard seeks to bring the facts to
the attention of all the electorate – so that each one of us can
make up our own minds where to place our trust.
